Totally Crushing: Jen Barber

And now it's time for another edition of Anime Crushes Totally Crushing, since I've renamed the category in order to accommodate whatever actresses and non-animated fictional characters I decide to spotlight in the future. (I've left the slug the same for the time being, though.)

Dreamy Jen!

Spotlighted today: the lovely Jen Barber (Katherine Parkinson) from "The IT Crowd"! Doesn't she look so sweet? (more...)

The Shredder Forever!
Category: Art … Toys

Shredders unite!

Had Turtles Forever featured this unholy alliance, I think the outcome would have been very different! I need to retake this picture with Metal Mutants Shredder, though... that little purple fiend definitely deserves to be included in the Shredder mashup.

Probably my favorite Cenobite in terms of design. 🙂

Who needs social outings when one can dream?
Category: Dreams

I had a pretty satisfying dream last night! I dreamed that I'd gone out to dinner with a bunch of people -- some of whom appeared to be former high school and college classmates; I have no idea where others came from (one looked a bit like an extra from some cop drama) -- and had a generally decent time hanging out with them. What made the dream feel especially great isn't that part of it, though, but rather how I felt about it after I woke up.

See, on the rare occasions that I actually spend time with people, any enjoyment I have during the experience is usually muted by the aftermath. Sure, it might be kinda fun while it lasts, but there's almost no prolonged benefit for me. It's not as if I'm building lasting friendships with these people; I always end up spending more money than I'd like to spend (I'd like to spend nothing); and I typically don't leave with anything tangible to show for the monetary and temporal loss (though if I remember, I'll try to squeeze in a photo or something -- at least then I have a keepsake of sorts).
